    I just saw this site offering an iPhone 3G for £940 excl delivery. Thats £150 more than if you were to just get the contract and pay for the phone!!

    It's even more than that. On O2's cheapest tariff, the 16GB costs £159.00
    Then there is 18 months x £30 contract fee, making a total of £540 + the £159.00 for the phone.
    Total: £699.00, which is £241 less than the price on that site. Why would anyone want to buy one from there??

    By just looking at the website I can tell that this isn't legitimate.

    the screen has the Leopard-like dock from 1.1.4 firmware and not the aluminium dashboard-like dock on the iPhone and iPod touch 2.0 firmware. seems fishy to me.

    iPod Touch and iPhone with 1.1.4 firmware

    I can't say whether this is legitimate or not, but i have purchased phones form them in the past - not had any issues and they've always been able to supply new phones before the release :)

    about the reflecting dock: There are Winterboard themes for jailbroken iPhones out there that have reflecting docks.

    I think it would be better with reflecting dock. Just like the iPod Touch on 1.1.4 firmware.
